Can't read French. You shouldn't have to go through all this nonsense to buy a game. Download the software and set it up is all you should have to do. Ubi is at fault here. Some forum members have done a lot of work to get around this problem but the problem remains.

It is one of Canada's official languages but I prefer Spanish. Might try to go back and download the English version if it doesn't cost more money. But then again, UBI said "Boonty and Ubisoft are currently working on solving these issues as soon as possible.

Thank you for your support, we will keep you posted in the coming days."

Might just wait and be a beta tester for their fix. For average computer buffs like myself, I believe waiting is a good call in this situation.

I chose to unistall Boonty Box, but I think it is harmless. It can be removed easily and the registry "leftovers" are harmless too.

I just did what Luthier wrote

- backup il2.exe and il2fb.exe v. 4.04
- download Boonty Box
- change prefs. to English and manual installation
- download Pe-2
- install manually and activate
- move file.1 and file.2 to the correct names and place
- uninstall Boonty Box (optional)
- restore backups of il2.exe and il2fb.exe v. 4.04

The next add-on will install over v. 4.05. If the registry does not contain info about this version a new full install may be required. So I think it is better to follow the normal installation process and leave the registry alone.

BTW, the Pe-2 installer is in French, but it is easy to follow the procedure.

Airam.

Point taken but UBI's fix will solve it for us average computer users right? Here's what my screen appeared like with Boonty "uninstalled." If you moved a dialogue box around it got worse. It was like this until Pe 2 was uninstalled and the registry was cleaned.

You're not alone mate. I too am waiting for the issues to be resolved. If nothing else it will remove a couple steps in this "easy 100 steps to a perfect installation" process that some folks have been kind enough to provide the community.

but one thing I didn't like seeing in the "apology" is...


Boonty and Ubisoft are currently working on solving these issues as soon as possible.

They're once again missing the point.

WE DON'T WANT @#$%^&*~ BOONTY involved in it!!!! We are wary of their software, wary of its intention, wary of its effects on our PCs and just want a straight up download and upgrade. Is that so hard to understand?

I know it doesn't help you much now Canuck, but just so no-one else has to pay perfectly good money for a simple registry cleaner...
RegCleaner (http://freeware4u.com/modules/mydownloads/singlefile.php?lid=49)

Also if you kept the PE-2 install executable you should be able to install this without the need to bring BB anywhere within sight of your PC. Just make sure you replace the new 1Meg+ il2 and il2fb executables with the old 11K versions once you're done.

I all agree with you 0ld_Canuck
I am waiting and waiting to get a oficial fix, I want to fly Pe-2

I have not uninstalled anyting just disabled the Booty Box, evrything else is as after I installed the Pe-2.
The instalation was in english no wrong or missing drectories or files. Everything is in rigt place.
I also yesterday installed the "Reabirth of Honor" on top of 4.05.
Everything works fine no problems, but if I trys to load a campain or a singelmission with the Pe-2 it crashes.
So to me it looks like it is a combination of the Boonty Box and the Pe-2 for I have not switched the IL2.exe files back to 4.04.

And the Booty Box always loads itselves from the IL2.exe files every time the IL2 (combained) is started.(I have disabled it)

Like a lot of people in this forum, I am not a power user and I want UBI to fix this problem before I go further with IL2 series.

Ok I said the last post was my last but something happened today. Booted up and the same lines were on the screen. Yup new vid. card needed right? Cleaned the registry again. Rebooted - no problem. I had uninstalled Boonty days ago and searched for folders and deleted them all. After the reboot the screen was crystal clear again wtf <--- as a "born again" I say this rarely. I searched "Boonty" and there it is all over the place installing stuff etc. IL2 series is totally uninstalled now and it will be re-installed once I confirm that the vid card is ok. Actually, I was secrectly hoping it WAS the vid. card so it could upgraded for BoB. Here's all the Boonty %$$@$%$ that re-installed itself after it was "uninstalled."
http://www.woodbuddies.com/PF/boontybs.jpg

If you're not comfortable about some of the more technical clean up steps don't worry - the two simple operations of a) uninstalling Boonty through the Windows Control Panel and b) replacing the .exes with the 4.04m ones (in my signature, if you haven't them backed up) are all you really need follow unless you are a tinfoil-hatter like myself and want to purge all traces from your system!

I lied .. still posting replies to well-meaning forumites.

TY justflyin, a computer tech. where I work (as a lowly grunt) has offered to help in return for a BBQ steak dinner :-) Could do with some of that m'self. He thinks it could be a service that got lodged in the registry and is constantly refreshing itself.

xiolablu3, can't say that I hate anyone in this forum. All the real trolls left shortly after Ivan started swinging his banhammer LOL. Some of those old trolls were unlikable IMAO. I hope to fly with the 99th. as soon as I get this mess sorted out. Will be trying to hook up in HL at 21:00 EST on Saturdays. On weeknights I've been having a bit of fun getting shot down on a Croatian server. That would be at 23:00 PST and later. Will be looking for you there.

I hope more users find your post, Hawdog, and take your advice. Oh BTW, just send me the money and I'll make sure Oleg gets it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Meesah happy nowww. First time in days the computer booted up without lines and artifacts. The magic bullet was find "IL2FB.exe" files embeded in the registry. When they were deleted, problems solved. Kinda disappointed it wasn't the video card. Thinking of trading in the old Radeon 9800 for an Nvidia 7900 to get ready for BoB.

OC - your screenshot of the registry message was because a couple of Boonty keys are read only (goodness knows why).

If you right click on them and check the full control and read permission boxes on that key, you can then go ahead and delete them without issue.

Not only as one person said Another wave of potential repeat customers bites the dust, but it also has a knock on for the next releases and will so split the community online.......... shame isnt it, I to will wait as is the host of this thread until they get their act together, and my money in my account not theirs..........

I first downloaded the Boonty mess on the 1st of May. I downloaded the Pe-2 add-on a few days ago.

I was going to attempt to another install the Pe-2 add-on this weekend, but three days of PC problems related to Boonty just killed the wish to have this version of the Pe-2 add-on.

Status: Boonty uninstalled (I hope), Pe-2 occupying hard drive space but uninstalled.

Just add this to the pile of why I'm suffering computer burnout.

Since Boonty is the most invasive piece of software I've ever willingly let on my PC, I'll wait for any news of a re-issue of Pe-2 at this point.

The sun is shining and the weather's awesome. I think I'll go outside.

Sure seems like hyper lobby has been dead lately.
Not that many 4.05 servers, and less decent 4.04 servers

Oh I dunno. Winds of War on 4.05 seems pretty popular...

Be very interesting to see how the next addon is handled.

Yeah, I actually bought 4.05 the other day becasue all the good servers had changed to 4.05.

All my fav servers are 4.05 now, UKD, Winds Of War and Warclouds.

Flew some good Pe2 covering fighter missions on WInds Of War last night. S! to FA_Pads, Eckhart and the others.

Oops. After another look around my PC, the Boonty uninstall apparently wiped clean my 11 hour download of Pe-2.

Nice. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/disagree.gif
